I am looking for a light/lights for floundering. For those of you who do not know what floundering is I will go in to some details. First off obviously a flounder is a fish who lives on the sea bottom. Where I live you can walk in the shallows (1-3 ft) at night and harvest the delicious fish. For ages we have used the butane lanterns. They are good, but kind of dangerous, hot, expensive etc... Also we like to use a boat in the shallows, but in most cases we need a small generator to power the halogen work lights we use.
I want some lights that are really bright, low power, and penetrate the water well. I would like to power them with simple a 12V deep cycle marine battery to avoid hauling around a generator. I would like to find some LEDs, but i dont know if they will illuminate the sea floor as much as a yellow tinted light. I dont want the surface of the water to reflect the light and make it difficult to see the fish on the bottom. Any advice is appreciated!
